Brake pads - which ones?

I was looking at getting some new pads and was thinking of getting EBC HH sintered, any thoughts?

I believe the models I need are FA196HH & FA214/2HH?

Anyone know where these can be bought in AUS?

Thanks

If you don't want a whooshing noise, stay with stock.

If brake swoosh, woosh, wurwur doesn't bother you grab a set of EBC or any others sold for the Bonnie.

My favs are DP Pads. I use them exclusively whenever I can. Just put them in the rear of the Thrux as the stockers were making horrible noises and they still had 90% on them!! The stock pads are weak as hell. Both front and rear stock pads felt like wood to me.

I would have just thrown DP pads up front but hated the look of the SS rotor & carrier so I ended up swapping it out for a BrakeTech setup which came with Ferodo pads to save some weight and get more stopping power. the Ferodo's are great pads too but I will use DP when they wear out...

I replaced mine on both my 05 and 08 T100's with EBC HH sintered, front and rear.
More stopping power and longer life.

Mine are a different # as the caliper is a 3 piston. To get them i just went to a local dealer, general non specific workshop. and they ordered them and they arrived 2 days later. Dont try your local trumpy dealer as it can be too hard for them some how!!!
They are a good alternative, you may find brake dive more of an issue if you havent upgraded the front suspension. Might be a good time to do it as you will be partly stripping the front!

Ferodo HH front and EBC HH rears. Much better bite than the stock Nissins, no whooshing or any other strange noises.

I run EBC HH pads on the front, but went with organic pads on the rear. I almost never have a pillion and rarely carry alot of luggage, so HH pads on the rear were a little too much; it was way too easy to lock up the rear tire. The organics have much better "feel", making the rear brake actually useful.

DP don't seem to make a pad for the 05 Thruxton. Any other suggestions for this model?

Those high cost sintered pads grind down those rotors. I don't think the minimal gain in stoping power worth my rotors going south.
